Butler's all-time leader in volleyball wins
- 2010 Horizon League Champion and NCAA Tournament appearance
- Had 8 winning seasons at Butler
- Coached 4 20-win seasons (1996, 2003, 2009, 2010)
Under the guidance of head coach Sharon Clark, the Butler volleyball program has reached the top of the Horizon League. In her 11th season at Butler (18th overall), Clark mentored the Bulldogs to the 2010 Horizon League Volleyball Championship and an NCAA Tournament appearance.
The 2010 season started with the team playing some of the nation's top teams, including Baylor, Louisville and Arizona. The tough competition paid off as Butler would go 13-3 in the Horizon League and then win the league tournament as the No. 2 seed. After playing in the NCAA tourney, Butler finished the 2010 season with a 21-10 record.Read Full Bio
Clark's 2009 Butler squad was one of her best. Butler went 21-14 - including a 9-0 mark at home - and claimed a regular season tourney championship at IPFW. The total of 21 wins was at the time the program's highest mark since 1997. Another milestone for Clark came during the 2009 season, when the coach picked up her 250th career victory. She enters the 2010 campaign with 156 victories at Butler, 13 shy of the school record.
During her time at Butler, Clark has made a habit of developing some of the top talent in the Horizon League. Nine Bulldog players have been named to the conference all-newcomer team in the past six seasons, including one player who won the league's newcomer of the year award.
The 2008 Bulldogs finished the year with 19 wins - the school's most since 2003 - and ended up just one set shy of reaching the Horizon League Championship match for the 10th time in program history.
